I should say I think Phil, and Bob want to avoid a "Guitar hero" band . One of the complaints about, say 77 shows, is that there is little interplay, and more Garcia guitar solos than actual jams, now I love those solos, but I can see the point .
Also, I think Jeff Chementi gets more space that most keyboard players did in the Grateful Dead . I think if you listen to Furthur more as group effort, and less of a lead guitar dominated band (maybe with Bob, and Phil, they spent enough of their time under the shadow of the "big guy") it is more rewarding . What John is playing is not thrilling you ? Then listen to Phil, or Jeff , etc.
